Ailyn Pérez returns to the Staatsoper Berlin to perform her prized role of Violetta Valéry in Verdi’s La Traviata. Performances are May 30, June 1 & 3 and will feature the Staatskapelle Berlin conducted by Domingo Hindoyan, with an acclaimed cast including Benjamin Bernheim as Alfredo Germont, Alfredo Daza as Giorgio Germont, Natalia Skrycka as Flora, and Corinna Scheurle as Annina. In 2017, Ms. Pérez received critical success singing Violetta in this same production by Dieter Dorn at the Staatsoper Berlin:

“Violetta was played by Ailyn Pérez and when she started singing I thought she must have been a mezzo, her voice was so extraordinarily rich. Her movement on stage, the fretting, and the to-ing and fro-ing, suggested the actions of a woman trapped by fate, with no escape other than self-sacrifice … delivered with bewitching grace she earned her ovations.” (Bachtrack)
